Hanwha Group Chairman Kim Seung-yeon met with Edwin John Feulner Jr., chairman of the U.S. Heritage Foundation's Asia Research Center, for dinner at the Plaza Hotel in Jung-gu, Seoul on June 30, a group spokesman said.
The dinner meeting took place on the occasion of Chairman Edwin Feulner's visit to Korea to participate in a domestic conference seeking ways for the Korea-U.S. alliance in the post-Covid-19 era.
At the dinner, which lasted more than two hours, Chairman Kim and Chairman Edwin Feulner candidly shared their opinions on ways to promote Korea-U.S. coexistence and prosperity after the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, the spokesman said.
Kim Dong-sun, Chairman Kim’s third son and managing director of Hanwha Hotel & Resort, and Executive Director Hwang Jin-woo, head of Hanwha Life Insurance's economic analysis office, were also present at the dinner.
The two chairmen’s close friendship began in the early 1980s and has continued for nearly 40 years. In the meantime, they have had meetings where they shared their opinions on Korea-U.S. issues and international political and economic order whenever they have the opportunity.
